Rabbi Michael Berenbaum
Not Your Parents Antisemitism: How Antisemitism in the 21st Century is Different
The contemporary hatred of the Jews is not a throwback to the 1930s but a unique manifestation of 21st century humanity and the post-modernist crisis. In this talk, Rabbi Michael Berenbaum a leading scholar of the Holocaust and former project director at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, addresses antisemitism on the right and the left in the United States today and the impact of Israel both in quelling the flames and fueling the fires of contemporary antisemitism. He argues that because the consequences and manifestation of contemporary antisemitism are different so must be the tools to combat it. For Berenbaum, hatred of Jews cannot be seen apart from the larger climate of hatred in the contemporary world.
